Fly or... by Esuka Fly or... by Esuka
So this one was delayed a bit due to various reasons. Sorry for the wait. I was going to write something to go with it, but it just wasn't working.

This is also the first attempt at a real complex background that I've done in a while. :shrug: it turned out ok, I suppose. Thanks to :icontimbaer: for giving me some pointers.

done in CS4

Now the question is if Dash can reach her in time.

i love it...
especially the details in the background like the other CMC and Dash coming to the rescue should she fail, but being far enough away that Scoots would know about it...
it's as perfect as could be to my untrained eyes...

Wow, I just know there is an epic story behind this. But ya know, the art is epic by itself so it doesn't matter if you typed it out or not. :D One little nitpick I have though is that at first glance I thought it was Fluttershy doing the nosedive...it might be the lighting of the ...sunset? Dawn? That tricked me. Anyway, awesome art! ^^

I question about how high up they are, considering that from this view, the clouds seem to be near the same height.

Why are poeple wanting her to die, with RD not helping? Do you all enjoy in the sight of Scootaloo's Death?!?

On a better note . . . let me tell you something . . . In all of the pony fanart I have ever seen so far, nothing comes even close to it as this piece right here. This tells everything we need to understand the story. I can tell that Scootaloo wants to fly, to be like her idol . . . She has decided to either fly . . . or die trying. But RD is not about to let her favorite fan slip away from her hooves. She will swoop down and catch her before Scootaloo falls to the ground.

gosh, this piece is making me tear up now.

this piece is beyond amazing, and the detail you went into, from the clouds beyond the mountain peaks to the tears flowing from Scootaloo's eyes . . . it's beautiful.

I shall go now to find something to dry these tears with

Great, fantastic work

I can't get this thing full sized. The largest I can get it to is 1024x576.
I've tried dragging the image onto goggle, but that didn't bring up anything better.

is not her element loyalty? I believe she is loyal to her fans as well. That accounts for Scootaloo. RD will save Scootaloo.

You know, her fans bring that up many times, but there are a number of times she wasn't.

Rainbow Dash may make fun of her friends and she is prideful but she wouldn't ignore someone who needs saving or keep from their pride from being damaged.
